I've tried this before and it didn't work but I thought I'd try it again.  Does anyone want to do a kind of multi play where we all play the same game only individually?  Kind of like a book club but with games?  I saw a bunch of Super Metroid hacks at romhacking and tried a few.  Some are pretty good and since I'm sure everyone here likes Metroid I thought we could try one of those.

Sure, it would be fun. Whichever hacks we all agree on, let's just hope they're not the kind that requires the player to have mastered the single wall jump with pixel precision because that group of people doesn't include me.

Not Cliffhanger, Pantheon, or Revolution EX then.  I was thinking Stardust or Mockingbird.

I hope you can use this Multi play as a opportunity to map the Magmoor Caverns in Metroid Prime Pinball, that is if your Multi play is compatible with NDS.

I just want to be clear that it's not the wall jump technique itself that's a problem for me. I've seen way too many hacks of games that are aimed almost squarely at those players who have completely mastered every techniques possible and in some cases, where you have to know and exploit every bug in the game's engine to progress at all.

So in short, I'd prefer a hack that's actually fun to play instead of a punishing, frustrating one. It's amazing how rare that can be.

Actually Will all the hacks I listed are SNES only.

I wish I'd saved Oxide for this Terra it was easy and fun.  The author of Stardust says it's on the easy end so I vote Metroid Stardust.  Anybody else?

Looks like you need to do mid air morphing.  You know how do to that right Terra?  Just go into morph ball the moment Samus hits her head on the ceiling.
And Ahh! the damn Chozo right off the bat! Nowhere to hide!  Oops, looks like this game might be harder then I thought.

Haven't had the time to start yet. As for the mid air morph, I'll give it a try since it's necessary to progress.

As for the hack being hard, I absolutely expected it. Seriously, extensive hack for this game are never balanced like the original but always aimed at giving more challenge. Am I weird to want a hack that's inventive and immersive yet not that much harder than the original? I feel the same way about most DLC content for games like Fallout 3 and the Mass Effect games.

Another way to do the mid air morph is to morph while still going up.  Most of the easy type hacks I've seen are just that; all the do is set the game to easy type.  I've gotten a little ways into it and... I've already fought Phantoon!  This hack is crazy!  There are power ups everywhere and most of the corridors are designed like anything but a Metroid game.  There was one spot requiring a wall kick jump but if you don't want to do it here's a jump code: 7E0B2DFF

I can't seem to find a ROM that works once patched, and I really haven't had the time to try each one to see if they would work once the intro was over. Can anyone tell me which exact ROM I need to use?

If a headerd rom won't work try a headerless.  So unlike most Metroid's this game is lots of little rooms instead of big rooms.  It reminds me of Metroid Prime 2.
